YouTube Now Better For Internet Marketing?

That is right, YouTube is now better for Internet Marketing.  Why?  It is now better because you can now place a YouTube video on your own website and when someone clicks on the video itself it won’t take you to YouTube.

It is great for people who want to market their products or services using video but don’t want to have to pay for bandwidth like you do on an Amazon S3 account.  It used to be that when you clicked on any YouTube video to pause it the visitor would be lead away from your website and straight to YouTube, which is not good if you are trying to sell something.

To make your YouTube video not go to YouTube when you click on the video itself you need to find the video that either you uploaded or one that you have found.  Then click on the “Share” button below the video.

The next step is to click on the “Embed” button.  Then I usually uncheck the “Include related video” box so that people don’t get distracted by other videos at the end that might take them away from your site also.

Then copy the embed code after you’ve unchecked the related video box because the code will change once you do that.  After that all you have to do is paste the embed code onto your website or blog in an HTML area and you are done!

You can now have a YouTube video on your website where people can click on the video and all the video will do is pause.  Again this is great because now people won’t be taken away from your website and you increase your opportunity to sell them something.
